Easy to install and setup, Lightpack 2 enhances your TV picture with rich, vivid backlight colors and subtle tones. With Lightpack 2, your overall viewing and gaming experience becomes more immersive and enjoyable. The second generation differs from the original Lightpack significantly. It does not require users to install and operate any software: all logic is handled by a hub box that sports 4 HDMI inputs for your various entertainment systems, along with Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. The setup can be augmented by Pixels, tiny auxiliary LED elements that can be placed on the wall around the TV to further enhance the overall experience. The new Kickstarter campaign will last for 39 days and target an initial goal of US$198,000.
